East Carolina University (Music - Voice)
Thanks so much for stopping by! My name is Arlie, and I'm currently a Senior studying Vocal Performance at East Carolina University. I am excited to begin tutoring students in interview, public speaking, and music. My unique background and extensive training in these fields make me an ideal candidate for any student seeking opportunities to grow as a speaker or singer.
In 2012, I was honored to receive the Miss North Carolina Overall Talent award as well as a Talent Preliminary award, and went on to become the 75th Miss North Carolina. I had the opportunity to travel the state over the course of a year speaking to numerous organizations statewide, as well as receive a Most Talented Non-Finalist award at the 2013 Miss America Pageant.
In addition to working as a Choral Scholar and Music Readiness Teacher at Jarvis United Methodist Church, I am currently a member of the internationally recognized East Carolina University Chamber Singers. I served as the secretary of the ECU Student chapter of the National Teachers of Singing organization in its inaugural semester, and represented the school at the 2012 and 2014 State NATS competitions. Recently, I had the opportunity to sing the role of Electra in East Carolina University's "Idomeneo."
When not on stage, I love to read and write. A graduate of William G. Enloe High School, I was the first student to ever receive Wake County Phi Beta Kappa Writing awards two years in row. I am honored to have made the East Carolina University Deans List (2010-2012) and Chancellors List (2013-2014) every semester, and I was thrilled to receive a 2011 ECU Excels award. I am a member of Phi Eta Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi National Honors Societies as well as a founding sister of the Lambda Iota chapter of Phi Mu Women's Fraternity. I also enjoy serving my school as an East Carolina University Ambassador and promoting volunteerism through my platform, the Domino Effect.
I teach students of all ages, and encourage them to begin building their performance and public speaking skills as early as 5th grade. My lessons consist of personalized strategies for improvement for each student, as well as practice activities to strengthen comprehension between our meetings. Before our first coaching, I offer a free consultation to answer any questions you may have.
I am happy to travel to a location that is convenient for the student, and while I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I do offer make-up sessions.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you become your best on all professional, academic, and artistic endeavors! Thanks so much for stopping by!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am a Senior majoring in Vocal Performance at East Carolina University. I was honored to receive the Miss North Carolina Overall Talent award as well as a Talent Preliminary award, and I went on to become the Miss North Carolina and receive a Most Talented Non-Finalist award at the Miss America Pageant.
I have sung professionally for symphonies, sporting events, ROTC events, commencement ceremonies, and state fairs. In addition to singing with a female a capella group for three semesters, I am also a member of an internationally recognized chamber singing ensemblr. I am a Soprano Section leader, and I have placed in the top four in the annual ECU Stars competition in each of the three years I have competed. I served as the secretary of the ECU Student chapter of the National Teachers of Singing organization and represented the school at the State NATS competitions, placing in my division both years.
I have an extensive theatre background, and have performed in numerous theatrical productions. Favorite roles include Philia in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum," Luisa in "The Fantasticks," and Electra in "Idomeneo." I have also served as the Musical Director for a summer camp for three years, and I teach a Music Readiness class for 4-6 year olds. In the second semester of my tenure there, I organized the first annual Instrument Petting Zoo, an exciting community event that I hope to continue upon returning in the Fall.
As a voice major, I take weekly lessons with Dr. Jami Rhodes, as well as classes on opera history, Italian/French/German diction, art song literature, music theory, sight singing, and music history. I speak some French, Spanish, and German, and am about to begin my study of Italian language. I have had the opportunity to attend masterclasses and seminars to further enhance my professional development.
